Real footage from Wolf of Wall Street party shows how accurate Margot Robbie detail is

Real footage from Wolf of Wall Street party shows how accurate Margot Robbie detail is

Australian actor Margot Robbie played Jordan Belfort's wife in the 2013 hit

It's hard to believe it's been over a decade since the release of Martin Scorsese's highest-ever grossing movie, The Wolf of Wall Street.

It's true! The star-studded blockbuster - featuring the likes of Hollywood legends Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie and Jonah Hill - first premiered in cinemas back in 2013 and has remained a firm-favourite among movie buffs ever since.

Amid the drugs, sex and money laundering that make this black-comedy crime film - which centres on the corrupt brokers working the New York stock market - so iconic, however, is that it is based on a true story.

That's right - there really was a former Wall Street mogul-turned financial criminal named Jordan Belfort, who pleaded guilty to fraud and related crimes in connection with stock manipulation. He was sentenced to four years in prison, though he served just 22 months.

Famed for running a boiler room as part of a penny-stock scam which took millions upon millions of dollars from naive Americans, Belfort previously lived a life of sheer luxury.

And as well as the plush sports cars, colossal yachts and mega mansions that the movie accurately portrays as being part of his life, the film is said to have precisely recreated the exact moment he came face to face with his beloved (now ex) wife, Nadine Macaluso.

Played by Robbie in the epic movie - though under the name 'Naomi Lapaglia' - the bombshell actor received global acclaim for her iconic portrayal of the British-born, Bay Ridge, Brooklyn-raised model whom he met at a party.

And it turns out, according to re-discovered footage of the real Nadine Macaluso back in the 1990s, Robbie got her characterisation pretty bang on.

Posted to YouTube, the video shows the real - and extremely glamorous - 'Duchess of Bay Ridge' speaking alongside Belfort's father Max outside a party.

With a freshly blow-dried and voluminous hair-do - an iconic feature of the 1990s party scene - it's no wonder that the gorgeous socialite caught the attention of multi-millionaire Belfort.

As well as that, other footage shared of a real-life beach party at Belfort's house - during which he first came face to face with Macaluso - highlights the similarities between that and the party scene in the blockbuster.

The film version sees the fraudster standing on the balcony of a packed out Westhampton beach house and giving one of his famous pep talks.

To an eager crowd, he screams: "We're going to take this company into the f***ing stratosphere."

Similarly, in the real footage you can see Belfort stood on the balcony of his beachfront mansion and getting his guests riled up in similar fashion.

The clip was shared on the YouTube page Comp Guy, who wrote: "Here's the REAL Wolf of Wall Street Beach House party, from the summer of 1991.

"It was taken a few months BEFORE the infamous Forbes Magazine article."

They went on to explain that in 1990: "The Wolf hosts one of many of his parties at his Westhampton beach house.

"It is like a Great Gatsby party, where anyone good-looking can crash.

"Nadine and her companion drive up in a banana-yellow Ferrari. The Wolf is entranced."
